Emmer, known as farro in Italy, was domesticated in the Southern Fertile Crescent and cultivated in ancient times throughout the Middle East and Old Europe. It was the only wheat used in ancient Egypt and was used to make the first matzah. Emmer is higher in crude protein than bread wheat but has low dough extensibility, emmer dough does not stretch and rise like bread wheat; for that reason emmer makes excellent pasta.
